I've never been to Seattle before so I was completely ecstatic when Derek found out he had to go Seattle for a sales meeting a couple months prior.We flew into Seattle late Thursday night and stayed downtown at the Hilton Garden Inn, which turned out to be a great spot to walk downtown easily! We made it to Seattle Tacoma Airport and took an Uber to the hotel and went straight to bed since we got in so late. The next day we started our first day in Seattle walking to Pike Place Market to eat all the goodies I've heard so much about! (Keep reading below...)

 Our original plan was to eat breakfast at "Biscuit Bitch" which is supposed to have amazing biscuit sandwiches but the line was OUT THE DOOR and there was no where to sit and eat but definitely hit this spot when you're in Seattle! (It's right near Pike Place Market)

 There's a hill that you walk down to the market...this makes walking back up not as fun!

 This was our first stop at Mr D's Greek Delicatessen! I saw lamb gyros on the menu (which I absolutely love) and so we stopped to get Pita Gyro's which are pita's filled with lamb, cabbage, onion, tomato, tzatziki sauce and hot sauce if you wish.

 The first Original Starbucks! It's in Pike Place and opened in 1971. Which strangely doesn't seem old enough right?!

 The Moscow Roll is made with cream of wheat and Bavarian cream blended together so it's light and fluffy with a vanilla taste...so good!

 We walked back out of the market and back towards the Monorail and took this over to the Space Needle. Tickets are about $2 a person and it's so quick and easy.

 Taste of Seattle was going on at the park in the same area as the Space Needle so we walked around and got some ice cream! We took an Uber back to the hotel and got ready for dinner.

 Kirkland Marina pictured above. We met Derek's boss CM and Melissa, their daughter Ava and another couple for dinner in Kirkland at a Mexican restaurant. We planned on going on a boat ride in Kirkland after dinner but it was a little bit too chilly.
